lyrics

Oh my heart, was covered in stone.
I felt like I was alone.
No one in the world could see inside of me.
I didn't run, or hideaway.

Broken and bleeding in the dark all alone.
You came to me in the spark of the whitest light that's ever shone.
You burned your candle right next to me.
You broke through this hard heart of mine, now I'm free.

Oh this ain't normal, oh no not for me.
You're like the strongest person I have seen.
You've got the greatest hold on me.
And all the demons I keep right next to me.

You found me out on the warmest summers eve
Talking to you for a moment, made me make believe
You walked me home, so politely, I knew the difference immediately.

I guess you're a lot like me but different just enough.
To know when I am weary and trying to be tough.
Oh there are times when I think you can't be real.
Made up for the purpose of making me feel,

Oh this ain't normal, oh no not for me.
You're like the strongest person I have seen.
You've got the greatest hold on me.
And all the demons I keep right next to me.
